SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We have implemented, and we apply administrative, technical and physical measures aiming to protect the personal information in our custody and control against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure.

 

We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information of our customers for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated above or to otherwise meet legal requirements.

We also take special measures to assess the potential risks associated with the disclosure of your personal information. In the event of a security breach, i.e. if your personal information is lost, disclosed without your authorization or becomes accessible to an unauthorized person, we will inform you of such a breach if it involves a real risk of significant harm. For example, a real risk of significant harm includes bodily harm, humiliation, loss of professional opportunity, financial loss or identity theft. If the breach creates a real risk of significant harm, we will notify you directly as soon as possible. If we cannot notify you directly, we will notify you of the breach through public communication. We will provide you with the information you need to understand the importance of the security breach and take the necessary steps to reduce the risk of harm that may result therefrom. We will also report the security breach to the government and any other organization that we believe may reduce the risk of harm that may result from this breach. We keep a record of all security breaches. Following a security breach, ATIS Group investigates its causes and reviews the protective measures in place to prevent future breaches.
